Dr Elisabeth Philipps PhD
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist with a BSc in Nutritional Medicine. I've been in practice for over 10 years and through my previous doctorate training (PhD) at Oxford University in neuropharmacology I take a specialist interest in how nutrition and the environmental factors influences brain health and the gut-brain axis, which underpins many different areas of physical and emotional health.
I have personal experience of the demands of an executive corporate environment and the toll that this can take on health. With this understanding I can provide not just expert opinion and nutrition programmes but also coaching in simple behaviour changes and practical strategies that can easily be implemented to change your health for the better.
